    Remember the glory days of Cannondale hardtails? They looked fast standing still in blue or red garb, big aluminum tubes, and that distinctive headshock front suspension. They seemed to dominate the magazine covers too as Tinker Juarez, breaking away from the pack, with his iconic dreadlocks...

    Mark Weir is the Godfather of American Enduro. Today, he no longer races professionally, but remains a big ambassador for the sport. His bike of choice is the Cannondale Jekyll, a 27.5 full suspension rig with 165mm of rear travel. Because his local terrain is steep, he chose it based on head...
